Electric Zoo is back with a new announcement that combined with the promotion they have been doing so far for 2016, makes for lots of excitement for EDM fans in the North East. Last year was successful, despite bad luck for the festival in the two years prior, and this year seems to be shaping up to be even better.

This year, Ezoo started off strong in their campaign for 2016, announcing a new theme for the festival this year. The theme is called “Wild Island” and has been the at center of their promotion so far. Along with that announcement a few months ago came the date of the festival. In concurrence with the last few years, the festival will take place on Labor Day Weekend (Sept. 2-4).

Continuing the hype for 2016, Ezoo announced the headliners for phase one today and revealed their plan to announce the rest of phase one as well. Headlining this year will be EDM legend and house all-star TiestoUltra Headliner and Big room specialist Hardwell, and the leader of the basshead movement, the long haired monster that is BassnectarThe rest of phase one will be slowly released over the rest of the April, with zoo announcing a new act every day on their social media pages.

My name is Adam Leopold and I'm a contributor here at EDM Sauce. I love all genres, but my favorites are trance and dubstep. I love artists that dignify themselves from the pack through original content and a separation from the average sounds. If you can throw down a set I've never heard before, I'm instantly a fan. My favorite artists are Above & Beyond, Pretty Lights, and Bassnectar. I'm currently pursuing a Political Science degree at Temple University and am living in Philadelphia as well. My name on Facebook is Leo Adam, feel free to add me if you want to chat about anything music related or just to have another friendly face in the scene. I hope you all enjoy what I put out and am so grateful to be able to give to an industry that has given so much to me!
